Worth staying for the experience

This hotel is located in Ichinose. It is a very short walk to the Ichinose ski area and you can easily take the free ski bus to go to other parts of Shiga Kogen. One ticket gives you access to the whole mountain. I traveled solo and as a female traveler I felt very safe. The hotel is clean but it is definitely a Japanese experience. The breakfast was delicious with a selection of Japanese food to sample. It is worth having dinner at the hotel at least once. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The staff speaks a little English and everyone was very helpful. The shared bath area was very clean and the main soaking tub was hot! The hotel also rents out gear and it was in very good condition. Take a day to go see the monkey park, you can easily reach it using public transportation. Wifi works in room. Very quiet with comfortable beds. Shiga Kogen is not a western style ski resort but the terrain and the experience are worth checking out. It is cheaper and higher up than Hakuba.

An authentic Japanese skiing experience. The owners have limited english but they do their best to communicate. The food was authentic and the dinners particularly delicious. I would recommend hiring boots and skis at the local hire shop and not the hotel, though. I would definitely stay there again.

Mr. Ishii and his team of staff were very hospitable in accomodating my group of 9. Breakfast and dinner prepared was superb. Though the place is not of five star but it's made up by the warmth of the staff and it's only 100m from the skiing slope
